Why does naming a Pet remove the pet description?

    Hail: I ask this because of all the greater/normal/lesser types of pets there are in the game now. Bob, the greater dragon, and Bob the dragon, look exactly the same. Is it not better to have, "Bob" a greater Dragon. Or "Killer", a lesser hyru, instead of just the name?

    Thoughts?

    You can tell if a tamer has a greater dragon because he will be on foot and if a normal dragon he will be on an etheral

    You need to know the approx stats for a greater or lesser and lore the pet. It should be more obvious considering the con artists out there, but that's your best bet just now.
